Hamilton, a junior who is a varsity rookie, was outstanding. The Lions (12-6), who eliminated top-seeded York 7-4 earlier in the day, hit only seven balls out of the infield.
Hamilton hurled a complete-game three-hit shutout, allowing only three singles, one of which was an infield hit. He walked one and struck out five.
“Willy was unbelievable,” Lee Milano said. “He threw three pitches for strikes and pounded the zone. I think he ended up with 72 pitches.”
Not many of them were wasted.
“I’m feeling great right now,” Hamilton said. “My change and my curve were working really well today. I was able to mix up speeds and throw off the batters.”
